McLaren has quickly refuted the comments of Christian Horner (Red Bull Racing Team Principal) about its rear wing design and says it has also been assured by Ferrari that it is not planning any protest to the FIA.
“We’re very confident that our car is entirely legal – and we’re not aware of any protest,” said a McLaren spokesman.
“In fact, we’ve spoken to Ferrari this morning and they’re not aware of any protest either.”
It remains to be seen whether the FIA will move to quiet this discord by quickly issuing a verdict on McLaren’s design and clarifying the regulations – or whether the matter will spiral into a full-blown controversy like that over double diffusers that dominated the early part of last season.
